Conference (Call for papers): Is Economic Theory Useful?, 6-7 September, 2018, Science Po Lille (France)

A two days international conference dedicated to the question “Is Economic Theory Useful?” will be held in Science Po Lille on 6th and 7th September, 2018.

Economic theory is subjected to a lot of criticism nowadays. It is accused of being unable to give efficient remedies to unemployment, inequalities, ecological perils and financial crises alike – or even of having contributed to these. Has economic theory always been useful? Has it been useful and to what purpose? We aim to distinguish three directions to discuss this theme: the meaning of the question; the history of this question under a practical perspective; the horizon to which this question is driving us.
